How To Deal With An Angry Spouse

How to Deal With an Angry Spouse John Gerson, Ph.D, It is important to differentiate the spouse whose anger is a healthy response to various partner insufficiencies, such as lack of attunement, inadequate empathy, neglect, poor partner functioning -in short anger as a protest to loss of love and safety – and anger which is more characterological, i.e., independent of what’s going on situationally.

How Sandra Fluke Relates To 'The Myth Of Feminine Evil'

"The Myth of Feminine Evil" is the tile of a noteworthy volume published by H.R. Hays in 1964. This work occurs to me in the effort to explain the phenomenon of men degrading women for their sexuality. In "The Myth of Feminine Evil," Hays identifies the primitive custom of banning the menstruating woman from working in the fields, lest her fecundity taint the season’s crops. It is unfortunate that a variation of this practice is seen today in some strata of Arab culture, as evidenced by the stoning of women who have had sexual congress with men outside of marriage, and the acceptance of the brothers of such women killing their sisters to remove what is considered the "blight of shame of family honor."

Reclaim Your Authentic Voice: Drinking From The Well

by Dr. Lynda Klau We all yearn to be real, to feel connected to ourselves and to others. Often, however, we lose this connection. We’re not living from our deepest passion, but we cannot find a way to bring it into our lives. We yearn to be more successful at work, but we lack the courage to take the necessary steps. Or perhaps a personal crisis, such as divorce or illness, has shaken our foundations.

Does Your Name Reflect Your Sexuality?

What do we do when we meet up with someone whose values are so opposed to our own? What about being curious as to why and how they made their decisions versus being judgmental? What about pondering their philosophy to come to a deeper understanding of another person's point of view, before condemning? Lastly, can we maintain civility and be polite regardless if we vehemently disagree?

Thank You, Rush Limbaugh!
There is some positivity that came from this man's disgusting remarks!

Thank You, Rush Limbaugh!

It’s great that Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute! By saying what he did, this misogynistic ignoramus inadvertently launched public awareness on this important issue like never before. I’m sure that was the last thing he was trying to accomplish, which is exactly why it’s extra satisfying. To add delicious icing to the cake, Sandra Fluke has handled the potentially devastating situation with dignity, grace and intelligence. Instead of shrinking in horror from the public attention and disgusting remarks, she rose to the occasion in a way that makes all of us self-respecting women proud.
